From the time of Louis XIV onwards, successive French political regimes made it their business to encourage and support the luxury crafts and industries of the country. The health of the applied arts was a sign of economic and social well-being: even the governments of the various Republics saw it as a reflection of their own importance. Beautifully reprinted in colour and black-and-white, here are original sketches and printed patterns representing three centuries of ideas for furniture, textiles, wallpapers, glass, ceramics and whole interiors - a French archive of design and decoration demonstrating the national fascination with elegant living. There is a wealth of material to draw on: from as early as 1685 the furniture designs commissioned for the royal collections at Versailles from Andre Charles Boulle were published as engravings; likewise the designs of the Rococo masters Meissonnier and Pineau were disseminated throughout France, while Napoleon's architects Percier and Fontaine themselves published many designs. Later on, the great international exhibitions held in Paris defined the styles of their period: Art Nouveau, Art Deco and International Modernism. The continuing vigour of the studio and small workshop traditions was seen in the work of such individuals and firms as Galle, Lalique, Guimard, and subsequently Ruhlmann, Sue et Mare, Baccarat and Christofle. Including a comprehensive resource directory making this a practical as well as a beautiful book, manufacturers, designers, decorators, retailers and craftsmen alike will find this treasury of French design heritage a unique source of inspiration.

"This book explores the life, professional activities, artistic production and collecting practices of Georges Hoentschel through the objects he collected and created. Essays by the editors, joined by Amy F. Ogata, associate professor at Bard Graduate Center and Christine E. Brennan, senior research associate in Medieval Art as the Metropolitan Museum, address his biography, business contacts, and clients, as well as the arrival of the collection in New York, its lavish four-volume illustrated catalogue, and the medieval collections. Also discussed is Hoentschel's involvement with contemporary art, including his intriguing stoneware creations and designs for a pavilion and interiors at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris. Fully illustrated catalogue entries explore the astonishing range of objects he collected. Throughout the book, new documentary material from archives and newspapers illuminates this little-explored chapter in the history of collecting decorative arts between France and America at the dawn of the twentieth century."--book jacket.

Challenging perceptions of sculpture and the autonomous artist, this book begins with a critique of the Rodin scholarship, to establish how the selective study of his oeuvre in particular, has obscured our understanding of French nineteenth-century sculpture. Drawing on new archival sources, sculptors and objects, this is the first sustained study of how and why French sculptors collaborated with state and private luxury goods manufacturers between 1848 and 1895. By contesting the false separation of art from industry, Claire Jones’s study restores the importance of the sculptor-manufacturer relationship, and of the decorative, to the history of sculpture.
